To increase transparency and public access, the Brain Repair Centre provides the media with a variety of informational and educational videos and other resources. Here are three videos outlining some of the important work that is being done at the Brain Repair Centre.




Victor RafuseDr Victor Rafuse is the Director of Dalhousie's Brain Repair Centre. In his studies on neural development, Dr. Rafuse is seeking to adapt what we know about the developing nervous system to help treat neurodegenerative diseases and conditions such as spinal cord injury, ALS, and Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Rafuse is working towards understanding how motor axons grow and form stable synapses during development and following nerve injury. Dr. Rafuse’s expertise and unique perspective are instrumental in bringing the Brain Repair Centre’s research from the laboratory to the bedside.
George RobertsonDr. Robertson is a Researcher at Dalhousie's Brain Repair Centre in Halifax. His primary research interest is finding ways to block the injurious events responsible for neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. He is developing both small molecule (drug)- and gene therapy-based approaches to protect the brain from damage by improving mitochondrial performance.
Alon FriedmanDr Friedman is a Researcher at Dalhousie's Brain Repair Centre in Halifax. His research focus is on how the components of the neurovascular network, including nerve cells, glia and vasculature, interact to underlie abnormal brain functions following traumatic and ischemic brain injuries.
